Lenny Kravitz has officially cancelled his Australian tour due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The US rock legend was originally scheduled to perform a trio of headline shows in Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne back in April to tie into his appearances at this year’s (similarly cancelled) Bluesfest.
Promoters TEG Live initially announced the events had been postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions. Now, they’ve confirmed all shows have been cancelled “due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and Government restrictions.”
In a statement, Kravitz commented, “I was really looking forward to seeing you all but we need everyone to stay safe, from the fans to my crew and band.
“Due to COVID-19 and government restrictions my upcoming tour dates are regretfully cancelled. I am hoping to be back soon. Let Love Rule.”
